Charges have been announced against the Decatur County man accused of forging multiple prescriptions in five different counties.

37-year-old Patrick Hayden has been charged with two counts of possession of Methampethamine and two counts of Forgery, police said.

Detectives believe he created counterfeit prescriptions, possibly from a home computer, in order to obtain Adderall.

A trial date has been set for May 29.

A Greensburg man was arrested over the weekend for allegedly forging prescriptions at several pharmacies.

Patrick Hayden was arrested Friday evening at his residence in the 700 block of Michigan Street in Greensburg after a search warrant was executed.

The investigation began after police received information that Hayden was involved in the passing of counterfeit / forged prescriptions at pharmacies in Greensburg, Batesville, Shelbyville, Muncie and Allen County.

“Through the investigation Detectives were able to verify that Patrick Hayden had obtained a significant large quantity of Adderrall,” reported Greensburg Police Chief Stacey Chasteen. “This was being done by visiting numerous pharmacies in numerous counties and passing counterfeit/ forged prescriptions purported to have been issued by a doctor.”

Detectives spoke with the physicians, one of whom informed police that Hayden was never a patient of theirs and confirmed that the prescriptions involved were counterfeit, police said.

During the search warrant, police discovered a computer that they said had evidence showing the production of counterfeit prescriptions, the same as those passed at the involved pharmacies.

Hayden revealed that he was using his personal computer to generate the prescriptions and added that another counterfeit prescription was done at a pharmacy in Rushville.

“Hayden also admitted to dealing in pills containing hydrocodone on numerous occasions,” Chasteen said.

Detectives are currently preparing the cases to present to prosecuting attorneys in Shelby, Rush and Franklin counties. A total number of felony counts that will be requested is not yet available, but police said it will be numerous.

Chasteen thanked the pharmacies that have cooperated with the investigation.
